War Paint®requires very small amounts to kill and repel flies. Small amounts of War Paint are placed on the horse only where flies tend to congregate.
War Paint, when applied to the horse, attaches to the hair of the horse and slowly releases the insecticide over a period of weeks. Full body fly control does not usually occur until 1 to 2 days after the application. The reason for this is it takes awhile for the formulation to release the insecticide onto the horse's hair.
Because War Paint is not only an insecticide, but also an effective repellent, you will notice that in the case of face fly activity, the repellent activity of the product will be apparent within hours if not immediately after application.
After a period of one to two weeks, as the insecticide is released onto the horse's hair, you will find that War Paint becomes powdery and will fall off the horse's hair leaving no adverse effects on the horse's appearance.

Precautions For Use:
Do not apply to the hair of a wet animal since the product will not adhere to moist surfaces. War Paint, once applied to the hair of the horse, cannot be wiped off. Therefore, it should not be applied within 1 to 2 weeks of an anticipated show even in which the presence of small amounts of War Paint on the horse's hair would have an adverse effect on the horse's appearance. As with any product, certain horses may be sensitive to one of the ingredients in War Paint and develop some local irritation. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. If irritation persists, consult your veterinarian.
